Vietnam index rises 0.3 pct, state sales plan helps

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI  rebounded 0.34 percent at the close on Thursday, snapping a four-day falling streak, as gains in some blue-chips firms in the list of state divestment offset losses in others.
    
Vinamilk  VNM.HM , Vietnam's biggest firm by market value, ended up 1.54 percent at its record high of 132,000 dong ($5.89), having risen 29 percent since Nov. 13 when the government said to sell its 45-percent stake in the company.
 
Technology company FPT  FPT.HM , also in the government's divestment list, jumped 4.95 percent, helping cushion declines in some other blue chips including PetroVietnam Gas  GAS.HM , which lost 2.18 percent on lower global oil prices.

SE Asia Stocks-Mixed; Thailand at five-week low

Southeast Asian stock markets were mixed on Thursday, with Thailand hitting a five-week low, led by telecommunication shares, and Indonesia outperforming the region on the back of financial stocks.
    
Thailand's SET index  .SETI  was down 0.6 percent at 0738 GMT, trading at its lowest since Oct. 7.     
    
Shares in leading telecommunications operators slumped on concerns they may end up paying too much for 4G mobile licences at a hotly contested auction.  

Advanced Info Service Pcl (AIS)  ADVANC.BK , the market leader, fell 5.8 percent, True Corp  TRUE.BK  slumped 7 percent, Total Access Communication (TAC)  DTAC.BK  lost 6.1 percent and Jasmine International  JAS.BK  fell 3.64 percent, after all the four operators had bid to win the licences.  
    
Thailand's 4G spectrum auction has attracted bids worth more than 74 billion baht ($2.07 billion) for the two licences on offer, the nation's telecommunications regulator said.
    
The Philippines index  .PSI  fell 1.1 percent to over five-week low and Singapore Straits Times Index  .STI  was down 0.7 percent.
    
However, Indonesia's Jakarta Composite index  .JKSE  was up 0.7 percent.  
    
"There are some selective buying in Indonesian market because technically speaking the index has been oversold," said Andri Zakarias, an analyst with Jakarta-based BNI Securities.
    
"Global oil price was down overnight, leading to expectation of further inflation easing. However, i believe there will be profit taking tomorrow since the foreign selling is still quite strong."
    
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  recovered and traded 0.3 percent up after falling 0.9 percent at the break to below the 600-point key level on gains in financial shares.
